Costello: Tech can fix climate change

In his column in the Lewiston Tribune Saturday, conservative Michael Costello targets climate change:

"Among the reasons that I doubt the perils of global warming is that global warm mongers don't seem to believe it themselves. And no, I'm not just talking about Barack Obama sending a Boeing 747 across the country to fly "Bill Nye the Science Guy" back to the East Coast for a brief speech on global warming. After which speech, Nye flew back on the same plane. That amounted to four cross-country flights by a 747 for a speech that lasted just a few minutes. The carbon footprint of those few words would be measured in tons per syllable. And I'm not talking about Nancy Pelosi demanding that the Air Force provide her with a 757 for her to commute back and forth between San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Her prodigious alcohol consumption during those flights left a significant carbon footprint, too. No, I'm talking about the unserious solutions that the global warm mongers advocate"/Michael Costello, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
